Frequent change; not being afraid to change was what they knew. Adjusting on the fly was commonplace. As Jack said of his wife Jackie, "She did all the heavy lifting.

It’s been reported that over $1 billion dollars is bet on the Super Bowl, including millions on simply prop bets.

NEW ORLEANS -- John Harbaugh and his younger brother Jim shared a bedroom growing up, but they can't split the Lombardi Trophy. One will experience the elation of winning Super Bowl XLVII, the other deflated by defeat. "In any game, that's always something you think about.

The Ravens and 49ers will play in Super Bowl XLVII but they are two completely different football teams
The last name of their head coach, Harbaugh. That is where the similarities stop for the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. The two teams who will play against each other in Super Bowl XLVII have very little in common from the top down. San Francisco has a history with the...
Super Bowl fever is in full force and rightfully so as this years matchup most likely will be the most gambled single sporting event of all time. Although, I can say I am a bit worn out and emotionally perplexed after religiously betting NFL games week to week, my spirit is picking up and I am ready for one more run; hopefully I end the season on a high note.
